Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has stated that he is not desperate to be Nigeria’s president.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant made this known while fielding questions from newsmen in Benin on Tuesday, after visiting the Oba of Benin.
Atiku said: “What do you expect my critics to say. I can run as many times as I want. I am fit and qualified and I still have ideas to put this country on the right path. What is wrong in trying again and again.
“I am not desperate to become President. If I were desperate, I would have taken the presidency in 2003. If I were desperate, I would not have stepped down for Abiola. I have the interest of this country.”
